SANTA ANA (AP) — Former President Bill Clinton will campaign for Democratic Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez later this month in Southern California.
Sanchez announced Friday that Clinton will headline her campaign event Oct. 15 in Santa Ana.
Sanchez, the incumbent, is locked in a tight race for the seat in central Orange County’s 46th District.
Her opponent is Republican state Assemblyman Van Tran.
Sanchez supported Clinton when he campaigned in Santa Ana in 2008 on behalf of his wife, then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
